The Alaska Dogstead sits on 160 acres near Big Lake, an hour from Anchorage in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley. It's here that Team Petit lives and trains year-round for the iconic Iditarod and other shorter, mid-distance dogsled races. Join us for a kennel and mushing tour summer or winter - We'd love to introduce you to our champion athletes and show you what mushing is all about!

Extend your time at the Dogstead and cozy up in one of our 3 spacious and fully-furnished yurts. Each yurt sleeps up to 5 people, has a small kitchenette, gas heater & wood stove, plus a bathroom with toilet and running water. You may even be visited by Libby and Beamer, our retiree Welcoming Committee, who roam around after-hours soliciting head scratches from our guests.
